Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

INDIANAPOLIS - Howie Roseman's job right now is to find the kinds of players new coach Chip Kelly needs, building at least a slightly different template than the one the Eagles used for 14 years under Andy Reid. Defining that template is a huge, important undertaking in Year 1 of a regime, and it has been Roseman's focus at the NFL Scouting Combine, as the Eagles' general manager sits every day with Kelly and the rest of the scouting and coaching operation, watching more than 300 prospects work out. "It's a learning process," Roseman said Sunday.

Damaris Johnson sat in his locker stall after the Eagles' 37-7 preseason win over the New York Jets on Thursday night and faced an uncertain future. This is the third consecutive year Johnson entered Labor Day weekend unsure of whether he would be employed on Labor Day. His grasp on a roster spot has seemed to wane each season. Johnson impressed this preseason, helping at running back while also filling his receiver and return roles. He finished with nine catches for 90 yards and a touchdown; 12 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown; and averaged 11.8 yards per punt return and 22.6 yards per kick return.

Cody Parkey's 54-yard field goal last Thursday was a hint that a change could come at kicker for the Eagles. When Parkey followed with a 53-yard field goal one quarter later, it seemed all but inevitable that Parkey would supplant Alex Henery. Coach Chip Kelly would not say it after the game, but the Eagles saw enough from Parkey to convince them that the rookie should open the season as the team's kicker. The Eagles cut Henery on Saturday, one of the 22 transactions the team made to trim the roster to the league-mandated 53 players.

There may be a decision to quibble with here or there, but the 53-man roster the Eagles trimmed to on Saturday didn't come with many surprises. They kept only three running backs, retained four tight ends, went heavy on the lines with 16 total players, and snuck five of Chip Kelly's former Oregon Ducks onto the roster. But there weren't any shocking cuts, unless running backs Henry Josey and Matthew Tucker, receiver Damaris Johnson, or defensive lineman Damion Square catch on elsewhere and light the NFL on fire.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Nobody among the nearly 180 Eagles and Patriots players gathered on the practice field behind Gillette Stadium this week is in a better position to deliver insights about both teams than Patrick Chung. Unfortunately for us, nobody has less interest in doing so. Chung played at Oregon when Chip Kelly was there. He played 4 years for the Patriots after they drafted him in the second round in 2009. In 2013, he signed with the Eagles as a free agent, Kelly welcoming him as a familiar player who could bring stability to the Eagles' long-troubled safety position.

The Eagles did not add a single inside linebacker this offseason, a curious decision for a position in which the starters were already overworked and the quality of the reserves remained an unknown. DeMeco Ryans and Mychal Kendricks are entrenched as the two starters. Najee Goode was the only other inside linebacker who took significant snaps last season. The next month will be important for the coaching staff and front office to learn what they have at the only nonspecialist spot without a new face.

Lane Johnson took a drug prescribed by a longtime family physician in April. He learned in May that he had failed the NFL's test for performance-enhancing drugs because of that prescription. A four-game suspension was on the way, and the Eagles' starting right tackle told coach Chip Kelly and general manager Howie Roseman about the failed test once he learned the results. Johnson appealed the ruling, but the punishment was ultimately levied Wednesday. So when he reported to training camp Friday understanding that he will be absent from the conclusion of the preseason until after Week 4 of the regular season, Johnson took responsibility for the infraction.

Chip Kelly is all about the process, all about being a little better today than yesterday, and is content to let the todays pile up and eventually become a tomorrow. When Kelly talks about what he hopes the Eagles will accomplish in the training camp that begins as players report Friday and take the field Saturday, he usually says: "We just need to get better in all phases. " Better today than yesterday and on and on. Somewhere deep inside the NovaCare Complex, however, inside the offices where Kelly and his staff and general manager Howie Roseman have plotted the course and prioritized the weaknesses that must be improved, the answers are a little more specific.

For 165 hours each week last season, the life of Eagles linebacker Travis Long was not much different from that of the players on the active roster. He participated in every practice. He attended every meeting. He traveled on every road trip. The only difference was those three hours during the game, when his teammates wore uniforms and Long wore a warm-up suit with the other practice-squad players. "In every meeting, traveling, doing everything the same, it did make me feel a part of the team," Long said.

Zach Ertz did not arrive in his Philadelphia hotel room until 5 a.m. after taking a red-eye from San Francisco following his graduation from Stanford. Once he stepped off the plane that day last June, his schedule could be committed to the Eagles. Before he landed, he had missed almost the entire Eagles offseason program. After a strong rookie season, Ertz has been a full participant this spring and is poised to be a major contributor to the Eagles offense this season. He no longer needs to worry about finishing a senior project that required him to discover trends in the stock market.

The 10 pounds Bennie Logan added this offseason beefed the Eagles' starting nose tackle to around 317-319 pounds, depending on the day. Even though that is a little shy of the prototypical nose tackle's weight, the team is confident in Logan, a second-year lineman, and has pledged its support for him. "Most people, when they picture a nose tackle, they picture a 330-plus guy, just clogging up the middle," Logan said. "But the way we play our defense, you've got to be able to run. And I don't feel I'd be able to run or do the things our coaches, in our scheme, require us to do. That's why I'm not 330, or put on that much weight.
